Meet The Big Moose Team

Our success as a company depends heavily on our team effort.  We offer you the highest in ethical practices, extensive home inspection experience and excellent customer service.  Ultimately, all we have is our reputation.  That is why we put our name on our inspections.  No inspector will catch 100% of the problems, but it is our goal to shed far more light on them than others would.  We will provide you with a level of accountability and professionalism that is unmatched.

Flexibility: We understand that your schedule may be busy and that convenience is a priority. At Big Moose Home Inspections we have multiple inspectors giving us greater flexibility to meet your inspection needs, even offering same day and weekend inspections.

Personal Touch: Our office staff will consult with you prior to the inspection to gather preliminary information to help determine the scope of your inspection and subsequently provide you with a preliminary quote. We urge you to participate in your inspection so that we can answer any questions and supply you with as much knowledge as possible about your home.

Technological Edge: Our inspectors use the latest high-tech and the most sophisticated systems, devices, and gauges. We want to bring our customers the latest information and therefore our staff participates in multiple continuing education events each year.  We also use technology to help connect with our customers quickly and efficiently.

Leadership: We believe that being a leader means listening to our customers.  We value each one of our customers and welcome suggestions to help us improve.  Thank you to each and every one of you!
